The Effects of an Interactive Computer-Based Simulation Prior to Performing a Laboratory Inquiry-Based Experiment on Students' Conceptual Understanding of Physics.
Zacharia, Zacharias; Anderson, O. Roger
American Journal of Physics, v71 n6 p618-29 Jun 2003
Investigates the effects of interactive computer-based simulations presented prior to inquiry-based laboratory experiments on students' conceptual understanding of mechanics, waves/optics, and thermal physics. Uses conceptual tests to assess conceptual understandings of each topic. Indicates that the use of the simulations improved students' ability to make acceptable predictions and explanations of the phenomena in the experiment. (Author/KHR)
